As Twitchy reported earlier Monday, no conservative who was paying attention at all wasn’t surprised that Supreme Court Associate Justice Brett Kavanaugh joined with four liberal judges in turning away a petition from Kansas and Louisiana seeking a ban on abortion providers. It didn’t matter how many times he said that Roe v. Wade was settled law — no one on the Left believed him.
Adam Best, who has some sort of newsletter, thought Kavanaugh’s decision was a great opportunity to dunk on conservatives who’d supported him.
Kavanaugh was confirmed despite being unfit because the GOP wanted him to legislate a conservative agenda from the bench. They must be shocked that he didn’t vote with Alito, Gorsuch and Thomas on Planned Parenthood. Gotta hate it when your far-right rubber stamp malfunctions!

This is the dumbest take I’ve ever seen.
— Alana Mastrangelo (@ARmastrangelo) December 10, 2018
So dumb. Most conservatives preferred Barrett at the time of the nomination, and many thought the Kavanaugh letter was perfect cover to nominate and jam her through as they continued to prefer her. they knew he would vote this way.
Read more, hot take less.

So you’re saying you were wrong about Kavanaugh. https://t.co/0LB1a8ph5T

Either that… or you were wrong. 😐 https://t.co/nJx7LnaO2f

Or you could have just been wrong the whole time. That explanation works too. https://t.co/MXKpv9qyZE

The Left is incapable of self-reflection. They see their own hysterical overreaction being proven ridiculous by rationalizing it through projection. They can't conceive their prejudices imposed onto us could be wrong. Everything validates their beliefs. Its really remarkable. https://t.co/ACxRa1ebrZ

This is so dumb. What conservatives knew and liberals refused to listen to was that Kavanaugh was always going to vote the way he did today https://t.co/nETBWFiBDp

Have you even read his decisions? He’s actually super moderate lmao. You’re an idiot https://t.co/qQ0ynA5795

This is pretty much a self own. The only people that thought he was gonna overturn Roe were liberals.

Unless, of course, you completely misunderstood why he was nominated… i.e., he's qualified. Just sayin'. https://t.co/salkfoEuLp

And the search for a Leftist who understands what the Supreme Court is and does continues…most likely in vain. https://t.co/GFPMb29N3X

Something liberal justices don’t know how to do. They’re all about activism instead of following the principles of the Constitution.
— NYSPORTSFAN (@nysports_66) December 11, 2018
Or he is the man of principle that the republicans said he was and not the monster you people tried to claim.
— mayonaze (@hollymayo) December 10, 2018
And just think, you wanted to ruin his life. https://t.co/sw1n7J6mLn
— bakedflounder (@bakedflounder) December 11, 2018
No, the progressives who tried to ruin Kavanaugh weren’t wrong! See, this was just a Trojan horse to lure liberals into complacency.
It's a ploy…trojan horse….
— mb cogswell (@mbcogswell) December 10, 2018
No they’re not surprised at all. He has to act under the radar for a while to not raise more suspicion and this was an easy one – a vote to not take a case.
— TMcG (@tracymcguire13) December 10, 2018
this is strategy. he is voting moderate now. you just wait.
— stephanie b. (@stefenenick) December 10, 2018
Seems pretty likely that this is his token “See? I don’t hate women” vote that he will now use as leverage against 30 years to come of rampant judicial sexism.

It’s 5-dimensional chess and they’ve caught on.
And now he is disgusted with the party and maybe Roberts has decided that the stolen Garland Seat and the whole suspicious why did Kennedy retire now has put the reputation of the court on the line and he is trying like hell to maintain their non-political reputation

Don’t trust him!

Abortion has never been the actual target for Republicans. That's just the distraction and rallying cry.
Voting rights and corporate power is where it's at. He'll do exactly what he's meant to do when those come up, and we'll be too busy worrying about abortion rights to care.
— Jenna (@JennJayBee) December 11, 2018
Please, tell us how long third-wave feminists have known that abortion has never been the actual target, because they’ve done a masterful job of pretending that abortion was a sacrament above all rights enumerated in the Constitution.
He was always pro-abortion. Trump picked him for legal protection.
— Marvin Minks (@MarvinMinks4) December 10, 2018
Quit with the pro-abortion! I don't know anyone who is pro-abortion. The term is pro-choice. Because women should have choices!
— Diana Baggett (@DianaBaggett2) December 10, 2018
Um, if you’d like to meet some people who are pro-abortion, we can hook you up.
Brett's waiting for a case to challenge Roe v Wade. This wasn't it.

We’re going to end the post here because we just can’t take any more.
Take a SEAT! Kavanaugh’s ruling on THIS petition makes Senators Hirono, Harris, and especially Feinstein look even WORSE https://t.co/y1DUAKcCBr
